While on the Subject of World War II Battleships

***  The USS Pennsylvania (BB-38) had two beam submerged torpedo tubes.  I didn't know battleships had torpedoes.

***  The USS South Dakota name resurfaces on a Virginia Class attack submarine.  The USS South Dakota was the most decorated battleship in World War II with 13 Battle Stars.  (April 14, 2012)

***  April 13, 2012.  The gun barrel from the USS Arizona was in East St. Louis, Illinois where it will be placed on the BNSF Railway.

Arizona is paying $100,000 to have it transported from Virginia to Phoenix.
